  I have been running with sources from May 17 without any problems like
this.  I have also just build a kernel from May 31 sources, which also
has booted without any problems.

  The /sbin/init I am running on one system was built July 27, 1994.  I
think my systems at home have newer versions of /sbin/init.

  I have not seen any problems with the floppy driver using -current
